Is this the Nocona of Nocona and Bald Eagle who were "sponsored" by Gorp in 
2000 in exchange for an on line journal?
  I dealt with the loneliness by keeping busy, either by hiking, planning or 
doing camp chores. I cannot really remember any loneliness on my thru hike. 
Staying in camp alone for more than one night produces loneliness for me. But 
if I keep moving, planning, doing, there's not much room for loneliness.
   Knowing others are cheering you on helps a lot, too
     I like to keep a balance between hiking alone and hiking with others. 
That way I'm comfortable in either situation
